It has been my experience that if you have a high end TV with a good image
processor, the best SD DVD playback results are obtained from a
progressive-capable DVD player putting out 480p over component. If you have a
well rated player able to deal with general DVD issues, the results are
surprisingly good.

If you have something like the highly rated yet inexpensive Oppo player,
trying the upconverted outputs over DVI won't hurt you, either.
